The Phone app comes installed on all Samsung smartphones.

An unauthorized user could gain this type of access if the victim installed any third-party app that was altered to “mimic the system-level activity and hijack critical protected functionality,” according to the Kryptowire report.

It was found to have an insecure component that gave apps without system privileges the ability to perform those privileges anyway without user operation.
